The purpose of this blog is to call for legislative reform to the flawed police system in the United States. Many people are outraged by the incidents of police brutality and injustice happening daily, like the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray. Social movements like Black Lives Matter have brought these issues to mainstream news and social media, and this blog’s purpose is to further convince readers why police reform is necessary.
In this blog, we will call for the mandatory use of police worn body cameras, the demilitarization the police force, and the end of stop and frisk policies. We believe that by legislatively correcting these problems, we will begin to take steps towards having liberty and justice for ALL Americans, not just some. Please follow along each week and read why we think there are problems in our current police system system and how we think they should be solved.
